Objective Perspective Content Writing & Editing’s Year in Review: 2015

As 2014 was slipping away, I started to plan for 2015. I wanted this year to be the one I  start to make my dreams a reality. After I officially launched Objective Perspective Content Writing & Editing this past January, I was equal parts excited and scared. “What’s next?” “What will people think?” “Will I do a good job?”  All of these questions swirled my mind on a constant basis. Even though I’ve come closer to the answers, these questions still remain. To be honest, I’m grateful for that feeling.

How To Responsibly Consume Online Content

After reading this headline, you may be wondering “why would I need to responsibly consume online content?” Well here’s the thing. With online information being so widespread and easily accessible, it can be incredibly overwhelming, tricky, and even dangerous to determine what information is true or blown out of proportion. I use the word dangerous because we often make decisions based on content we consume. If the wrong content is consumed, these decisions can have a negative impact on our health, political decisions, and even the way we treat each other. I know I am not alone in seeing these negative effects of consuming inaccurate content.

How to Use Track Changes on Microsoft Word

 

Microsoft Word has a function called Track Changes that is helpful for collaborative projects and editing. I use it often for both writing and editing projects with my clients.
